ABOUT Isamu Noguchi

Portrait of Isamu Noguchi by Louise Dahl-Wolfe, 1955



Isamu Noguchi is an American artist of Japanese descent. He is mostly qualified as a sculptor but he also worked in the design, gardens, and scenography fields: multi-faced, artistically and personally, he represents, in his own words, “the fusion of two worlds, East and West [and hopes to reflect] more than both.”
